Wyoming

Wyoming currently has three Medicaid waivers that can serve children, all of which are home and community based 1915(c) waivers. All three are based only on the child's income, waiving parental income for eligibility. See Wyoming's Medicaid Eligibility page for links to the various different available programs or this page on developmental disability programs.

Wyoming also has several adult-only waivers, including Long Term Care (physical disabilities), Assisted Living Facility (physical disabilities), and Acquired Brain Injury.
